This original photograph is part of Melbourne photographer Tom Blachford’s Midnight Modern Part III series. Using long exposures and just the supernatural glow of the moon, Tom reveals iconic Palm Springs architecture in a totally new way. In this new series, Tom was granted unprecedented access to modernist masterpieces such as the Menrad Residence and Kaufmann House. The series is being shown in a one-day exhibition within the Menrad Residence as part of Modernism Week in Palm Springs.
‘‘My latest series is my most involved to date and took an uncharacteristic amount of patience and dedication. Shot over three separate trips to Palm Springs, California, the images explore the relationship between the moonlight, the forms of the houses and the mountains as backdrop. The naked eye is unable to process such dimly lit scenes; but the camera, through long exposure, reveals images unseen. Time is compressed from thirty seconds into one viewable moment. The stars blur into dashes to remind us that even seemingly immovable steel and mountains are slowly spinning on a grand scale as our earth rotates on its axis, and in turn around the sun.’’ Tom Blachford
